Most of the outages were caused by trees coming down on the lines and snapping them.

If we get the ice predicted for Mon.-Wed. it will make last week look like a minor inconvenience. If it's cold enough the ice will pack up on the lines themselves and eventually snap them. I remember the ice storm about 17 or 18 years ago and that's what happened then. Any tree limbs that didn't come down the other day will come down with the ice.

Our snow removal in MD is so politically driven. If this happened BEFORE the election, we would have seen bare pavement. But the governor is safely in office for another 4 years, and this is what we get. I don't think he even held a news conference like he usually does. I DO blame those that KNOW they live in a treacherous area. I-83, Westminster, Owings Mills is notorious for not being snow friendly areas. So prepare.
